A straightforward, lightweight symmetric encryption algorithm meaning that any communicating parties have a shared key. Other forms of encryption such as Diffie-Hellman ( are asymmetric which means they use public-pivate key pairs.

Twofish was an Advanced Encryption Standard ( (AES) finalist and is the successor to the Blowfish algorithm. Both the Blowfish and Twofish algorithms are open source and created, in part, by recognized security expert Bruce Schneier.
